The best free attractions in Las Vegas
The iconic Welcome to Fabulous Las Vegas sign
If you don't visit and click one photo with Welcome to Fabulous Las Vegas sign it's like I've never come to Vegas. Until 2008, this sign did not have a designated parking lot or place for visitors to pose. Then people literally stood in traffic to take a souvenir photo with this legendary landmark. Now, however, the visit is easier and you can also take advantage of the small parking available.
You'll find the 25-meter high solar-powered sign in the median of Las Vegas Boulevard, just south of the Mandalay Bay Hotel & Casino. At certain times of the day, there may be a long but fast line.
The Silverton Aquarium – Silverton Hotel & Casino
The underwater attraction of the Silverton Aquarium has been named one of the best free attractions in Las Vegas, and for good reason. The 450.000-gallon aquarium is home to more than 4.000 exotic fish, as well as live sharks, rays and corals. But the peculiarity of this attraction are the beautiful mermaids interacting with guests!
The aquarium also boasts a nearby bar, where you can have a drink and enjoy the view of the aquarium. You will also find many bars, restaurants and gambling halls at the Silverton Hotel, and of course large rooms at an affordable price!
